Perhaps Obama was onto something when, as a young author, he zeroed in on the term "audacity" to (subconsciously) telegraph his ambitious designs to fundamentally transform our beloved America.
What word could describe better than audacity Obama's refusal to accept responsibility for his dreadful policies; his standing before the American people -- even today -- in the face of the avalanche of evidence proving how terrible Obamacare is and continuing to lie about what it will do; his persistence in mislabeling his unaffordable monstrosity "the Affordable Care Act;" his failure to address the legitimate, undeniable complaints about Obamacare and his insistence -- at all costs -- on cramming it down Americans' throats; and his taking -- in the words of Time -- an "early Obamacare victory lap" just as the horrifying effects of this law are about to descend, in full force, on the American people?
In his "victory lap," he exclaimed, "We're now only five days away from finishing the job." You mean the job of destroying our health care system and economy?
Obama said Republicans are trying to destroy the law because they are scared it will work. He described the GOP's position as this: "We've got to shut this thing down before people realize they like it. ... It will mean everything they said wasn't true and they were just playing politics."
On Thursday, just five days from the scheduled implementation of this infernal boondoggle, the White House tweeted up a storm about the wonders of this law -- though study after study is being dumped on the public, even by the liberal media, conceding what a disaster it's going to be and how utterly different its effects will be from Obama's promises.
Consider a few of the White House's audacious tweets quoting Obama:
"Tell your friends, tell your classmates, and tell your family members about their new health care choices." How about instead, we tell the liberal New York Times, which just reported that patients will likely have fewer choices?
"Since I signed the Affordable Care Act into law we've seen the slowest growth in health care costs on record." Yes, just as Obama's the most frugal president in 60 years, a uniter and a fierce proponent of the free market.
"You've got new choices, new competition, and many of you will have cheaper prices." By "many," does he mean, perhaps, a few thousand in a nation of about 314 million? What might he say about Forbes reporting that Obamacare will increase average individual-market insurance premiums by 99 percent for men and 62 percent for women?
